Business Casual Attire
Period Costumes

this invite moves me in so many ways: period costumes? alexander hamilton speaking to me in the first person and suggesting that i not only show up to this thing, but register online? it also reminds me of this dude i sort of knew in college who had pale skin, ruddy cheeks and a mole on his cheek. my friend and i used to call him "enlightenment boy" behind his back and joked that he probably spells economy "o-economy." (c'mon, we were reading adam smith at the time). i bet he's got some period costumes he could wear to this shindig.
